There are so many romantic things to do on the Isle of Wight, from camping under the stars to walking on our almost deserted beaches. Make time for your and your loved one and we guarantee you will fall in love with everything the Island has to offer…
Camp under the stars
Enjoy the great outdoors and sleep under the stars at Tom’s Eco Lodge. Escape the daily grind and stay in a range of glamping options. Choose from Modulogs complete with their own hot tubs; Eco Pods with stunning views across to Tennyson Down and Safari Tents decked out with comfy sofas, a rustic kitchen and log burning range cooker.
Visit a historic (and extremely romantic) home
Osborne, the former holiday home of Queen Victoria and her beloved Prince Albert, where one of the greatest love stories played out before Prince Albert’s death. The house is a breathtaking Italianate-style villa with stunning grounds and a private beach to explore. Inside boasts a decor equally as ornate as the exterior, replete with sumptuous galleries and rooms.
Relax with a spa day
There is little more relaxing than a day of pampering. The Lakeside Park Hotel has four beauty treatment rooms and a relaxation room offering a wide range of body treatments and beauty therapies, including facials and massage. Afterwards, relax in the restaurant or take a walk around the pretty grounds. lakesideparkhotel.com
Take a scenic walk
There are plenty of walks to choose from on the Isle of Wight. Try a walk along the rugged south coast of the Island, taking in Steephill Cove, Binnel Bay and Ventnor Seafront, or if you are feeling energetic, take the Tennyson Trail, named after one of the Island’s most famous residents Alfred, Lord Tennyson who was the poet laureate during Queen Victoria’s reign.
Enjoy a romantic meal for two
For a fabulous meal in an equally fabulous location, the Three Buoys delivers on all fronts. Look out across The Solent to Portsmouth, lit up against the night sky. The chefs source their ingredients as locally as possible: from the day boats working along the South Coast to the local farms set on the Isle of Wight, the focus is always on provenance.
Steam through the Island’s countryside
Visit the Isle of Wight Steam Railway for a taste of a bygone era. At the perfectly preserved station, catch a steam train and take a round trip through the Isle of Wight’s countryside. Look out for red squirrels and farm animals as you enjoy this nostalgic ride. iwsteamrailway.co.uk
